The third annual Crown Women Rising (CWR) Women Empowerment and Business-to-Business Conference is slated for Accra in May, the Country Director of CWR, Mrs. Nana Sekyere has announced.
Opening on May 8, 2019, the two-day summit is part of CWR’s iRise Africa Initiative and is designed as a platform to showcase Ghana’s women-owned businesses and connect them with investors and prospective marketing/distribution partners from across the African continent, the United States, Europe and the Diaspora.
The conference will be hosted by Crown Women Rising-Ghana, in partnership with Government of Ghana Ministries, Departments and Agencies, major donors, non-governmental organizations, local banks, Chambers of Commerce, and local women-focused non-profit institutions.
CWR-Ghana is a women-led affiliate of a United States-based non-profit organisation which focuses on women empowerment, business development and marketing, public-private partnerships and capacity building.
Ghana was upheld as the undisputed venue for the 2019 Regional Summit “Entrepreneurs Empowered for Africa’s Prosperity: Engage, Connect and Grow” because its capital, Accra, was recognized in November last year as West Africa’s meetings, incentives, conferences, and exhibitions (MICE) ‘City of the Year’.
The Ghana summit will focus on empowering women by providing its participants new opportunities to learn, share, care and be heard during facilitated sessions presented by subject matter experts and thought leaders, Mrs. Sekyere told reporters.
